for warren buffett. >>> dennis rodman with a message from north korea to president obama. details on all those stories throughout the hour, but first -- >> to washington. new today speaker of the house john boehner says he sees absolutely no path to ending the sequester which officially took effect late friday. the speaker spoke exclusively to david gregory on today's nbc "meet the press," specifically addressing president obama's role in the debate process. >> he has a plan that he's put forward that involves entitlement cuts. that involves spending cuts. that you've made a choice as have republicans to leave tax loopholes in place and you'll rather have those and live with all these -- >> david, that's just nonsense. if he had a plan, why wouldn't senate democrats go ahead and pass it? the house has acted twice over the last ten months to replace the sequester. if we're going to -- the president counted his tax hikes on january 1st. >> democrats are firing back, though. here's senate majority whip dirk durbin today. >> what we have here is a steady diet. i don't want to point fingers,

correspondent martin fletcher. good day to you both. >> nice to be with you. >> dennis, i will begin with you. was this style over substance and style does matter a lot here, right? especially with israel. >> well, i think sometimes style and substance become one and the same. the fact is the president had a major objective in this trip and that objective was to build credibility with the israeli public. by doing that, that would begin to create greater political space for him on issued like iran, on issues like the peace question. if you don't have that connection, if you don't have that credibility, the ability to move on those issues becomes profoundly difficult. so i think what he did was achieve a fundamental objective number one, and number two, there was a substantive achievement. that substantive achievement was a reconciliation between turkey and israel. something the administration has been working on for the last three years. that came directly as a result of this trip and so i think this was not only an achievement of style, it was also an achievement of substance. >> and so that

jong-un? >> well, sure. he is a black box. the only american that's talked to him is dennis rodman. i mean at one level we've seen this kind of cycle of provocation, you know, before. and there is a kind of a wag the dog, if you will, quality to it. as long as it stays at the propaganda level, we'll work through this. the real -- the real new variable if there is one here is, as much as kim jong-un is creating this crisis to solidify his base in north korea, he's challenging a brand-new president, president park, in south korea. and the difference here is that political dynamic. that, you know, from south korea's standpoint, there have been the nuclear tests, the missile test, going back a couple of years, the sinking of one of their ships, the shelling of one of their islands. so the real danger here is one of provocation, escalation, miscalculation, and then, you know, if north korea does something provocative towards the south, the south is likely to respond in some fashion, and then you move into dangerous waters. >> meanwhile the u.s. continues to show its support for south korea

last week, not really funny but nonetheless a joke about dennis rodman now knowing more about kim jong-un than the cia. how much does our intelligence community really know about what's going on in north korea and this new leader? >> well, dennis rodman was a great basketball player. he's not a skilled diplomat to be sure. and the notion that he can somehow pay a visit to north korea and then make an assumption or judgment upon the validity and the eagerness for the north korean leader to pursue a path of peace is pretty pathetic, frankly. but nonetheless, president obama has said we're prepared to reach out to kim jong-un. but we're not going to deal with a closed fist. so china believes we are pursuing the right policy of increasing those sanctions, japan, south korea, all of our allies understand the consequence of what the north koreans are doing. it's very dangerous to the extent that they continue to develop nuclear weapons to the extent they are now reaching agreements and have had agreements with iran. so you have a nexus between iran and north korea developing missile technolo
